Dynamical, thermodynamical, biological and chemical variables are the state space of the ocean. These variables vary over a wide spectrum of space and time-scales due to the interplay of stochastic forcing and nonlinear dynamics. The documentation, understanding, and prediction of the mean state space and its variability must be achieved by a methodology capable of comprehensive use of both numerical circulation models and measurements. However, standard statistical methods often fail to address peculiarities in ocean analysis and assimilation, such as nonstationarity, heterogeneity, strongly nonlinear dynamics, and sparse and irregularly sampled data sets. My primary research interest is to address these non-trivial data analysis and assimilation problems for the purpose of documenting, modeling, and predicting oceanic variability. My approach has been, and continues to be, an end-to-end process of technique development, application to regional and global ocean data sets and numerical circulation models, and scientific analysis.
